The route is nearly all off road - just a section on road through St Ives and again through St Neots. Most of the route is along scenic paths, which take you through nature reserves, pastureland and woods. Some paths are tarmac or gravel, most are grassy (and if the rain has been heavy, could be muddy). As befitting a route near the Fens, it is flat - the total elevation gain is 264 feet.
This is the second year this marathon has been run, we plan it to be a small, friendly race - organised by runners for runners. There will be plenty of water stations with some added treats available, a bespoke medal and more treats at the finish.
The Ouse Valley Way Marathon is point to point, starting at Earith and finsihing at Eynesbury. The Race HQ will be at the finish and transport will be available to the start if required.
